Gary Harris out 4-8 weeks
The most dangerous offensive threat from the MSU men’s basketball team is set to be sidelined for a few weeks.
Sophomore guard Gary Harris suffered an ankle injury in a pickup game Friday afternoon and will miss 4-8 weeks leading up to the start of the regular season, MSU basketball sports information director Matt Larson said during the MSU football game against Western Michigan on Friday evening.
Considered by many to be an All American during 2013-14 and a threat to leave for the 2014 NBA Draft, Harris battled through shoulder injuries for much of his freshman season, where he still captured Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors.
During the 2012-13 campaign, Harris was second on the team in scoring with 12.9 points per contest to go along with 46 total assists and 45 steals.
The high-flying sophomore made news earlier in the day Friday when he tweeted out a photo of he and senior center Adreian Payne decked out in MSU football gear, which the two wore as part of a promotional video that aired during the MSU football game.
